Exactly. There are a few.

Chizik, Coker, Ross, Carr, Erickson, McCartney, and Edwards were already mentioned.

I'd add Les Miles and Butch Davis too.


I feel like these groups need to be separated out.

Chizik is the only truly bad coach in the group. Even Coker is probably more average than bad. All the others are pretty good coaches.


I think a lot of coaches who have 1 Nat'l title..

could probably be called really good coaches, they probably had a career of good teams and then they just got that one group, had a special player(s) and were able to win a Title.

Dan Devine fits that description.

Ara was a Great Coach, he did it more than once and his teams that won it all had something special that set them apart from his other teams that didn't...might have been a lack of injuries or that special player(s).

Clearly Saban is a Great Coach..again done it multiple times, different schools even.
